Bill Gates' daughter Jennifer, 25, opens up on 'challenge' of planning $2million wedding during parents' divorceOctober 19, 2021
BILL Gates' daughter Jennifer has told of the "challenging" process of organizing her $2million wedding during her parents' divorce.
The oldest child of billionaire Microsoft founder Bill and ex-wife Melinda Gates married equestrian Nayel Nassar on her $25million horse farm in North Salem, New York, at the weekend.
In an interview with Vogue on Monday, Gates called the wedding planning process “challenging” due to both the pandemic and her family's "transition".
“It’s been a challenging year, both collectively with the pandemic and for our families going through transitions.” Gates said.
“But our love for one another has been a constant. Being able to celebrate our wedding with our closest friends and family was a dream come true,”
The Gates' divorce was finalized in August.
Jennifer, who goes by Jenn in the interview, also revealed she asked for everyone in attendance at the wedding to be vaccinated – and to take a COVID-19 test as well.
Two ceremonies took place over the weekend, one religious and one civil.
The bride wore a custom Vera Wang gown and Coldplay performed as well.
“Planning a wedding while I was in medical school rotations and Nayel was preparing for the Olympics was no small feat,” Gates added.
Nayel competed for Egypt during the Tokyo Olympics.
The wedding included 300 guests with masks made available.
“We feel incredibly fortunate to be able to gather with our loved ones safely.”
